Dick Clark passed away yesterday at the age of 82, and it's with sadness that we say goodbye to America's oldest teenager. We first got to know him as the host of American Bandstand, and then he made Times Square a must-see every December 31st with his always-memorable New Year's Rockin' Eve show. Over the years, he also chronicled the most of-the-moment singers and stars, including some of our favorites, like Paula Abdul, Hilary Duff, and Mariah Carey. See some of his most memorable celebrity encounters in the gallery now.
